Terrence Clarke was a very athletic, skilled swingman that came in as a highly touted recruit when he arrived at Kentucky. He was an aggressive scorer that could make shots from all over the floor when he was in a rhythm, and he also was a capable playmaker that played with a point forward’s mentality. He was a consensus 5-star recruit that was also named a 2020 McDonald’s All-American.
However, Clarke had a tough freshman season as it didn’t quite go as expected, and it was derailed due to a leg injury. Still, he was a talented prospect that was considered to be a solid bet to go in the second round prior to his death. He tragically passed away on April 22nd in a car crash at just the young age of 19 years old.
